LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Hundreds of hospitality and tourism workers will drive down the Las Vegas Strip April 1 in a hopeful "Light Up Las Vegas" event.
The message? We'll be back, Las Vegas.
Vehicles will line Las Vegas Boulevard beginning at McCarran Sunset Business Park. The route will end at Fremont Street downtown, lights ablaze with "Viva Las Vegas" blasting over the speakers.
Among many, the tourism and hospitality industries have taken a severe hit amid the coronavirus pandemic, but the organizer's goal is to provide a beacon of hope to our city.
The event was created by Allison Raskansky, Managing Director of Best American Destinations.
To adhere to social distancing guidelines, participants will be restricted to their vehicles during the parade.
Wednesday, April 1
Arrival: 5 p.m., 5:15 p.m. start at Entertainment Benefits Group (EBG) Parking Lot in the McCarran Sunset Business Park (1421 E. Sunset Road)
End: 6:15 p.m. DTLV
NOTE: To maintain an orderly procession, drivers are asked to drive in single file, occupying one lane of Las Vegas Boulevard only and are reminded to drive safely and observe all traffic signals. Substantial construction activities are underway on portions of Las Vegas Boulevard, which means the roadway may be down to one lane in certain areas anyway at Spring Mountain Road/Sands Avenue. Participants may wish to exit the drive at that intersection to avoid delays.
